The main interest in our laboratory has been focused to determine the mechanisms of damage of some parasitic infections that constitute important public health problem in Mexico. The amebiasis is an intestinal infectious disease produced by the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. One of the interests has been the study of humoral and cellular immune responses (natural and specific immunities) and the cell changes occurring during the host-parasite interaction in the intestine and the liver. Using in vivo animal models either susceptible or resistant to infection, we are presently analyzing the role of several lectins and other molecules (cytokines, nitric oxide, oxidative stress, etc.) during the evolution of the lesions produced by E. histolytica. Moreover, our studies on the innate and specific immune responses have been related with the induction of protection against the infection.
